KKE leader rules out cooperation with SYRIZA

The leader of Greece's Communist Party (KKE) Aleka Papariga on Thursday ruled out any possibility for cooperating with the Coalition of the Radical Left (SYRIZA).

In comments made during an interview with Skai Radio, Papariga said the main reason KKE saw no scope for cooperation that would be beneficial for the people was that the proposal made by the leftist grouping did not stretch beyond the elections themselves.

KKE will remain in the political opposition, she said.

Describing the day after the elections, Papariga said the political landscape would resemble quick sand. Conservative New Democracy and socialist PASOK will continue to try and convince the public while those who still want the two parties in a coalition can have Prime Minister Lucas Papademos at the helm again, she said.

In any case the KKE leader predicted that whichever government emerges from the polls will be short-lived, leading to fresh leaks from the political parties and the creation of more new ones.

Questioned about ongoing strikes in the private sector, the communist leader remarked that there can be no peace among workers forced to live on a monthly salary of 300 euros."
